Swanson wanted to do the scene because of she’d been fascinated with her grandmother’s copy of the painting “The Lion’s Bride,” and, based on childhood nostalgia, was eager to let a male lion make biscuits on her back. The “fuzzy lion,” Swanson explains, went on to “almost kill someone” two weeks after DeMille shot her scene, which just goes to show you that even the cuddliest of cuddly creatures the animal kingdom has to offer are little more than homicidal maniacs. Except marmosets. Marmosets seem really nice.
